For anyone confused about who right-wingnut Mike Pence really is, check out the video (see below) of Pence talking about how “proud” he is of his long-time “friend,” anti-choice extremist Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List (which, as NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia points out, “has a long history of waging war on women’s rights and healthcare, from their support of radical ‘personhood’ legislation to their fight to ban access to abortion in all cases – including rape, incest, and danger to the life of the mother”), who introduced Pence earlier today in Virginia.
For more on Dannenfelser, see Right Wing Watch. For more on the Susan B. Anthony List and Dannenfelser, see SUSAN B. ANTHONY LIST’S ANTI-CHOICE MACHINE. This report quotes Dannenfelser quoted as bizarrely stating that “to lose the connection between sex and having children leads to problems;” as calling reproductive health care an “ideology” (WTF???); as claiming that the “majority of women in Virginia and across the country support” mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds; etc.
Also see this article in The Nation, which has Dannenfelser defending Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin as an “excellent partner;” pushing the infamous “transvaginal ultrasound” law in Virginia; wanting to defund Planned Parenthood; etc. That’s the person Mike Pence says he’s so proud to be friends with. Scary.
